The other headliners already announced for the first major festival of the summer are The Killers and Bon Jovi.

John Giddings, the festival's promoter, said: "If you like music, you like Paul Weller - he is one of the greatest singer-songwriters this country has produced and we are proud to bring him to our small island off the south coast. We have plenty of pebbles on a beach for him."

Other acts added to the line-up are I Am Kloot, Kesha, Kodaline, Devlin, Little Angels, Willy Mason, Steve Harley And Cockney Rebel, Lawson, Ian Hunter and The Gypsy Queens.

Other acts previously announced are Jake Bugg, The Script, Bloc Party, Paloma Faith, The Maccabees, Emeli Sande, Ben Howard, Ellie Goulding, and Blondie.
